The Albany Patroons made the decision Wednesday to cancel the remainder of their season due to the rapidly spreading Coronavirus.

Earlier on Wednesday, the World Health Organization officially classified COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, as a global pandemic.

The Patroons had eight games left in the season including three coming this weekend. The team was anticipating to have high turnout on this weekend's games.

Coach Derrick Rowland was on Levack and Goz this afternoon to break the news first with 104.5 The Team.
